The walking aid designed for multiple sclerosis.

Discover how Wheeleo® improves mobility for multiple sclerosis patients.

What is multiple sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease affecting the central nervous system. It begins with an immune attack on the protective layer surrounding the nerves, also known as the myelin layer. This causes inflammation and damage to this layer, leading to broken connections in the brain and spinal cord. The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is not known, but scientists believe it is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

What are the symptoms of multiple sclerosis?

Depending on the location of the damaged nerves, different symptoms appear. Symptoms vary from person to person and from moment to moment. As an MS patient, you could describe your journey in terms of good and bad days, depending on the type of symptoms you experience and their severity.

Visit The most common symptoms of MS are as follows: 
  Balance and coordination disorders.
– Difficulty walking. Weakness, spasticity, sensory deficits and muscle fatigue. 
– Dizziness and vertigo. Feeling of imbalance and dizziness. 
– Pain, fatigue, numbness and tingling of the face, body or arms and legs. 
– Vision problems. 

Less common symptoms include tremors, paralysis and blindness, as well as speech, swallowing and hearing disorders. 

The course of multiple sclerosis varies from person to person and depends on the type of MS. MS progresses when symptoms begin to occur on a continuous basis, progressively worsening and accumulating. Multiple sclerosis patients may experience reduced mobility, making their autonomy more limited.

Improve your life as an MS patient.

There is no cure for MS. Current MS medications reduce the number of relapses and delay the progression of disability. At present, MS treatment focuses mainly on managing the symptoms of the disease.

If you have MS, your symptoms may come and go, get worse or disappear altogether over a period of time. Symptom-free periods, also known as remission periods, can last from a few weeks to a few months. It can be useful to find out how to stay in remission for as long as possible. It’s best to discuss your treatment plan with your doctor. In addition to medication, habits such as regular exercise, eating well and managing stress are known to help you feel better for longer. 

How Wheeleo® helps MS patients.

Due to damage to the nervous system, MS often leads to walking difficulties, with impaired balance and coordination. That’s why physiotherapy is highly recommended for MS patients, to help them regain and maintain their strength, flexibility and general fitness.

That’s where Wheeleo® comes in. Wheeleo® is a mobility aid that supports MS patients in their ability to function in daily life. It facilitates walking during periods of severe and mild symptoms, without stigmatizing or compromising independence.

A test version of Wheeleo®️ is available at the offices of the Multiple Sclerosis League of Naninnes.
